to eat and to see

We have a glut of fruit, especially plums! We can't pick enough, the trees are laden. We have made many new friends by giving bowls of these delicious things away!



Mrs H has been baking and made these plum puffs after watching a video on YouTube by 'My Daddy Cooks' - a Dad cooking with his 4 year old, Archie - very sweet!
She followed it up with a stew from the Cranks recipe book.

We also went to a magical outdoor theatre on the moor just outside Liskeard called Sterts.
We saw 'Guys and Dolls' and it was so professional despite being performed by amateurs.

It had an awning, but we all still needed blankets (and a drop of something to warm the cockles).

PS. If you have any favourite plum recipe's or ideas for storing, please can you tell us?!


  1. The plums look delicious to our mom, though she's never cooked with them.

    What about checking out plum recipes at

  3. Darcy and Bingley, I got Plum Tree too !!!! but we have to wait till Spring to get the fruit ( This month is the last month of Winter in Australia ). and Thank you to tell us what human can cook with Plum ! My mom always have a trouble what she is going to do with the plum fruit, Our plum give so much fruit in every year. In general she just make a plum jam or give away to her co-workers or left it for birdies. But she never known we can make the Stew from Plum !!! That's awesome !
